Team USA vs. Spain live updates, highlights
Halftime: USA 55, Spain 454:24 p.m. --
Anthony Edwards throws down an emphatic dunk after a Spain missed dunk. That puts an exclamation point on the half. Austin Reaves then throws another one on and gives the United States a 10-point lead at the half. Huge turn of events to give the United States a 55-45 lead.4:22 p.m. --
To that point, Brunson continues to lead the way with 16 points as halftime approaches.4:19 p.m. --
Brunson really is such a good catalyst for this offense. This probably wasn't on purpose though.
4:15 p.m. -- The United States are building up a bit of momentum, and a three has built the lead up to seven. Spain, however, has shown an ability to put up points. 49-42 with 2:49 left in the half.4:11 p.m. --
The United States are starting to adjust defensively. Steve Kerr has them taking away skip passes, which have bitten them. Spain adjusts as well, however, and stays within two by exploiting an open middle near the free throw line. Some good coaching going on here.4:09 p.m. --
Tons of ebb and flow in this game so far. Both teams are shooting threes well, the United States is looking a little bigger inside. 36-34 three minutes into the second, with neither team showing signs of slowing up.
4:03 p.m. -- Both teams exchange triples again, with Johnson hitting another one and Rudy Fernandez hitting one on the other end to tie things up again. Nice ball movement on both sides is leading to some great looks.
:01 p.m. -- Cam Johnson continues the strong three-point shooting from the United States, hitting a triple from the wing to give Team USA a lead, if only for a moment. Paolo Banchero picked up a foul on the other end and we're tied up again.
End of Q1: Spain 28, USA 263:58 p.m. --
The first quarter ends with Spain in the lead, 28-26. There's been some nice shooting from Baloncesto España, whereas the United States have met some resistance trying to bang inside. All in all, effective from both teams, but the United States is in for a much-needed test.3:51 p.m. --
Spain has taken the lead again on another three to make it 23-22. Quick releases on this roster are proving to be an issue for the United States. They just hit another three on a kickout to make it 26-22 with 1:42 in the first. Strong quarter for Spain from beyond the arc.
3:49 p.m. -- Spain takes the lead momentarily on a three from the corner, but Brunson immediately answers to make it 20-18 USA again. Three-point shooting has been a big bugaboo for the United States, so that's a promising sign.3:45 p.m. --
Willy Hernangomez shows his strength there. Shoves Jaren Jackson Jr. in the lane and draws a foul as he scores. Nice move inside as play stops momentarily.
3:43 p.m. -- Nearing the five-minute mark in the first, both teams are looking for a flow on offense. Spain had hit a three but the United States is still running with flow. Ingram has another dunk but Spain is keeping pace. 17-12 USA with five minutes remaining in the first.
3:38 p.m. -- Both teams exchanged baskets to start the game, with Brunson hitting a mid-range turnaround and Spain answering with a dunk on the other end. Brandon Ingram then flushes a dunk on the other end.
3:35 p.m. --
Both teams are on the floor as they continue opening ceremonies. The United States will be wearing white whereas Spain is donning black. Jackson Jr. tips off against Geuer.3:30 p.m. --
